Following their modus operandi of supporting anyone who goes against Catholic teaching and/or the Magisterium, the National Catholic Reporter has criticized the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) for criticizing Mercy Sr. Margaret Farley's book on "sexual ethics", Just Love.
The CDF concluded that, "Among the many errors and ambiguities in this book are its positions on masturbation, homosexual acts, homosexual unions, the indissolubility of marriage and the problem of divorce and remarriage".
Even Sr. Farley admits,"......my responses to some particular sexual ethical questions do depart from some traditional Christian responses.......".
Never the less, the National Catholic Reporter hasn't missed an opportunity to bash the Vatican. They note that, "In 2008 she received the prestigious Louisville Grawemeyer Award in Religion for the book." (The award is actually referred to as Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary and the University of Louisville Grawemeyer Award in Religion). NCR also makes mention of the Rev. Paul Cadetz, an ordained Presbyterian minister and professor of historical theology at United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities in New Brighton, Minn. as an endorsement of Farley's supporters.
The, so-called, National Catholic Reporter, using Presbyterian accolades to support an apostate over the Magisterium.
In another hit piece against the CDF the NCR opines, "That's a loss for the hierarchy, who would benefit greatly from a close reading of Farley's framework for sexual ethics. But their loss is the Catholic laity's gain, particularly those who have not yet been exposed to Farley's work." Having been exposed to Farlwy's work hasn't driven me into the NCR's camp. On the contrary, it further exposes the NCR as, not the National Catholic Reporter but, as referred to by LarryD, the National Catholic Distorter.
